THE SOCIAL NETWORK KINK MEME


ASK THE MODS * FAQ * DISCUSSION * RESEARCH * FILL LIST * PART ONE * PART ONE (OVERFLOW) * PART TWO * PART TWO (OVERFLOW) * PART THREE * (PART THREE (OVERFLOW) * PART FOUR * PART FIVE * PART SIX * PART SEVEN


GENERAL RULES;

IMPORTANT: please DO NOT post prompts about any non-public people as part of a prompt. for example: randi zuckerberg is fine as she is a public figure both on the internet and on facebook itself. priscilla chan is NOT as she is not a public figure.

if you're in doubt, please message the mod or leave a comment in the discussion post.



♥ post requests and responses in the comments to this post.
♥ be respectful.
♥ both a pairing/character AND a prompt/kink must be posted.
♥ one pairing/prompt per comment please.
♥ you are encouraged to try and write a prompt for every request you make.
♥ we are slash, femslash, het, three-and-moresomes etc. friendly. (we are even incest friendly what with some of our characters being twins and all...)
♥ no pairing bashing, OK? no need to wank over ships.
♥ long and short fics welcome. multiple responses encouraged!
♥ please try to refrain from saying 'seconded!' as much as possible.
♥ on RPF: Please disclaim that it is RPF, a work of fiction and in no way related to the actual actors/persons/etc. (i wouldn't even try and discourage RPF from this meme ;))
WARN FOR COMMON TRIGGERS, PLEASE




FORMAT OF PROMPTS;


♥ alphabetize pairings/threesomes/moresomes. (e.g. Eduardo/Mark/Sean etc.)
♥ put [RPF] before RPF prompts. (e.g. [RPF] Andrew/Jesse)
♥ for crossover prompts: "[Crossover], The Social Network Character(s)/Other Character(s), [Fandom]" (e.g. [Crossover], Eduardo/Columbus, [Zombieland])
♥ no "!" in pairings, only in descriptions. (e.g. Eduardo/Mark, FacebookCreator!Eduardo, CFO!Mark)
♥ anyone, everyone, no one? Use "Other." (e.g. Sean/Other)
♥ put [GEN] before GEN prompts.




FILLS;


♥ please don't embed. link to images/videos.
♥ no locked material. this includes communities, even if membership is open.
♥ fills can be posted anonymously or not.
♥ fills can be anything: fic, art, vid, fanmix, podfic, etc.
♥ all prompts are open to fills at all times, even if they have been filled in the past or are being currently filled by someone else. multiple fills are positively encouraged; if something appeals to you then do not be put off creating a new fill by the existence of a prior one.
NEW: ♥ PLEASE comment with the first of your fill to the PROMPT and then all future updates as a comment to the FIRST PART of the fill. this makes it easier for both the WIP spreadhseet and for archiving stuff on delicious. it also helps people who are trying to catch up on updates and don't have to look through every fill on the prompt (should it have more than one). thank you.

Eduardo/Mark, depressed!Wardo

THIS ---> http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmaat5xmYA1qzlloao1_500.png

Is just so friggin' Wardo i can't even. I'd like him to scream it to Mark, some time after the depositions. Please a big fix-it.

(sorry too much Adele lately)

when you love someone but it goes to waste

(Anonymous)
Uh so here. This isn't very good, probably, but it was fun to write and I like angst, so.

Disclaimer: I don't own these people.


Eduardo isn't Wardo anymore.

He's happy, sort of.

Or, at least, he's not unhappy. Not really, not anymore.

After everything - after Mark, he'd thought he couldn't get better.

But he could. He is.

Really.

*

Eduardo goes to shareholders' meetings, sometimes.

He sits in silence at them and he knows the other members of the staff stare but he doesn't give a shit. Not now. He sued Mark and he won and they can talk all that they want.

(Sometimes, he sees Mark, sitting in his chair, and he wants to hug him - to tell him that everything's okay, because Mark seems so unhappy.

And then someone talks to him and Mark smiles like he never smiled at Wardo.

Or, rarely smiled at Wardo.

And so he doesn't.)

*

One day, Mark walks up to him, puts a hand on his arm.

Eduardo flinches away.

Mark winces. "Are you all right?"

"Why would you ask?" Eduardo asks, voice stiff.

Mark tilts his head to the side. "Because you don't seem happy."

Eduardo shakes his head, forcing a smile onto his face. No, I'm not fucking happy. "I'm fine."

Mark raises his eyebrows. "No, you're not."

Eduardo walks away.

*

Sometimes, he writes Mark drafts of e-mails.

(Who is he kidding? He's not okay, and he's never going to be.)

They vary in levels of anger, coinciding with the amount of alcohol he drinks.

Mark, you're an asshole.

Mark, I hate you.

You're a dick.

Fuck you.

I just wanted you to want me.


He hates admitting it, even to a blank screen at three in the morning - but it's true, and nothing but alcohol will get him to admit it.

"I loved you," he sometimes whispers, if he's feeling sappy enough, "and you fucking threw that away, you dick."

He never sends anything.

*

Mark's health is going downhill.

He's thinner, and Eduardo goes to more meetings because he needs to keep tabs on Mark, because even years later habits can't be broken.

He doesn't want to do it, but he does.

He puts a hand on Mark's arm. "Hey."

Mark whips around, eyes wide. He's scared. "What?"

Eduardo forces himself to smile. "Are you all right?"

Mark shakes his head, but doesn't say anything. His eyes are wider, now, as though he's frightened of Eduardo.

And he realizes, then, that they're not what they used to be, that they're never going to be the same. "I'm sorry," he says.

He leaves.

*

Mark stops him after another meeting, weeks later.

"Wardo," he says.

Eduardo whips around. "Don't call me that."

Mark swallows, visibly, but stands his ground. "Eduardo."

He nods.

"Are you okay?"

And his standard response pops up - because he's said it a thousand times before and he'll say it a thousand times again - but it's not what comes out. "No, I'm not fucking okay. I feel like shit and I miss you all the time and I'm still heartbroken, still fucking heartbroken over you, and you don't deserve it but I am."

And he leaves.

(Mark lets him go.)

*

Eduardo skips the next few shareholders' meetings. He doesn't need to go, doesn't want to go, and he doesn't care what Mark feels - because obviously, neither does Mark.

He misses him, and he loves him, because he's never fallen out of love with Mark. He hopes he'll grow out of it.

He doesn't think he will.

*

Dustin calls him, leaves a message.

"Mark needs to talk to you. He's freaking out. Just... We've got a meeting on Thursday. Try to make it, Wardo."

Eduardo listens to the message and sighs.

He has no choice, when it comes to Mark.

*

Mark corners him in the parking lot.

"I do want you," he says, and his words are too fast, "I've always wanted you - fuck, Wa - Eduardo -"

And his lips are inches from Eduardo's, and he swallows, once, for once not hiding anything.

And so Eduardo kisses him, and feels himself fall into the familiar shell of Wardo.

I love you, he thinks, and he won't say it now, but later, later, because he thinks - he hopes - they're going to have time for that, time to be happy, to get to know each other again.

Mark holds his hand, and they walk back inside.

Re: when you love someone but it goes to waste

How can you pack that much feeling into so short a fic?
